If you've been following AnimationNation over the years, you may recall the activity we had as a result of the late Roy Disney's battle with Michael Eisner from 3002 into 2005 over the control and destiny of the Disney Company, and then finally culminating with the merger between Disney and Pixar. One of the things Roy Disney was fighting for was the preservation of the studio's legacy with the production of traditional hand drawn animation. The movement he started was called SaveDisney. 

During that time in Wisconsin in the upper Midwest of the US, Tom Hignite took Roy's mission to heart and embarked upon the formation of Miracle Studios which has been dedicated towards continuing classic hand drawn animation. His project and lead character, Miracle Mouse, is an offshoot of Tom's primary business as a home builder. Tom's been a supporter of AnimationNation for many years and we appreciate and enjoy his participation with the site, as well as his commitment to bring the miracle of an animated Miracle Mouse to families everywhere.

Here's a promotional video that Tom's produced. To see Tom's comments and a further explanation of what he's up to, follow this link
